THE PURGE TV RETURNS-WITH CLUES FOR SEASON TWO IN TRAILER & POSTER?

The trailer and poster art for Season Two of USA’s The Purge series is here, along with some intriguing hints and clues for the next installment of the Blumhouse horror franchise created by James Demonaco. Before its’ October debut, let’s see what hints the art and trailer may provide.

THE PURGE S2 KEY ART - FINAL

First, check out the poster above. Most interesting to me? The return of the “God” mask worn by “Young Ghoul Face” (LaKeith Stanfield) in The Purge: Anarchy (2014). If this is the same mask as worn in that film, it’s looking a bit bloodier than what we saw in the film. Also, are we seeing the sun rise in the East, or set in the West?

Now, check out the Season Two trailer –

A few interesting snippets of dialog in those two minutes

*An unidentified voice claims, “The Purge is making people more violent, not just on Purge, but every day of the year.

*A young woman first says to Ben (Joel Allen), “What happens on Purge Night says on Purge Night,” then “You haven’t been yourself,” to which he responds, “I know.” We see Ben drawing the same mask worn by the intruder who breaks into Marcus Moore’s house.

*Marcus Moore (Derek Luke) says “Someone tried to Purge me,”and “whoever is after me, they are not going to wait a year.”

*Is the second season moving forward chronologically from Purge Night, or featuring flash-forwards instead of Season One’s flashbacks, as I speculated here?

And the image below brings to my mind a potential connection between the two seasons. Does Ben share a school and/or fraternity connection with Season One’s Rick Betancourt (Colin Woodell)? Last season, Checkov’s fraternity paddle played a major part in Rick’s storyline, even if the fraternity  houses appear to be different. Did Rick attend (the apparently fictional) Cooke University in New Orleans, LA?

*The trailer’s musical accompaniment? A twangy, post-apocalyptic sounding version of “Blood On the Risers,” a WWII-era paratrooper song.

He was just a rookie trooper and he surely shook with fright,
He checked all his equipment and made sure his pack was tight;
He had to sit and listen to those awful engines roar,
“You ain’t gonna jump no more!”
(CHORUS)
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
Gory, gory, what a hell of a way to die,
He ain’t gonna jump no more!

THE INBETWEEN Season Finale Tonight – Will NBC’s Cops, Criminals & Psychics Series Return?

NBC’s summer psychic/police procedural, THE INBETWEEN, heads into either a season or series finale Wednesday, August 14 (10/9c). Hopefully, we’ll find out sooner rather than later if the rating were good enough to warrant another season of this intriguing variation on the usual TV cops & robbers.

Written by J.T. Johnson For any newcomers that might be checking out the “Halloween” series for the first time this year, you might get a little confused once you get into the sequels. Unlike other horror series, the Halloween films have gone through multiple “timelines” where certain films ignore previous films or they outright remake […]

F&S – THE PURGE S2 Sneak Peek Teaser

thepurge_castinfo_joe_desktop_2880x900

Another year, another Purge Night – on TV, at least. USA just released a teaser trailer for the second season of The Purge. Take a look.

 

This fall, “what happens on Purge Night doesn’t stay on Purge Night“. Like last year’s highly rated “television event”, Season Two follows a select group of characters through the night. According to USA this season “dives deeper than ever before in to what the Purge world looks like the other 364 days of the year.”

It’ll be interesting if Season Two both follows and reinterprets last season’s format. Season One flashed back to the choices  made by characters leading up to Purge Night. I’d love to see this season mix it up a bit, mixing Purge Night events with flashforwards, showing this season’s characters dealing with the consequences in the following days, months after the Purge.

We have no specific premiere date beyond “this fall”, but official images, information, and other goodies can be found at the official Purge USA site, as well as Facebook, Twitter and You Tube. Season Two’s cast includes Derek Luke (13 Reasons Why, Antoine Fisher), Max Martini (Saving Private Ryan, NCIS: Los Angeles), Paola Nuñez ( La Reina del Sur, The Son ), and Joel Allen (Never Goin’ Back).

Making Contact aka Joey — Really Awful Movies

Despite there being a demonic ventriloquist in Making Contact, nobody quips, “you’d be angry too if you had a hand up your butt.” Lost opportunity. Despite its title, Making Contact is not an alien move. That’s just one of the many, many odd things about this one. Youngster Joey loses his father, and we, the […]
